For The Record: Final Numbers From Florida, Ohio, Virginia

"SNIP...........................................

With nearly all precincts reporting, Obama is winning the state with 0.50 percent lead. The threshold to trigger an automatic recount? 0.50 percent. This result may change and break further in Obama's favor because, as The Miami Herald reports, some of the outstanding votes are in Miami-Dade county, which Obama won by a 25 point margin. Full results from the county, the Herald explains, may not be known until later today.

By the way, Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson received almost 43,000 votes in the state. The difference between Obama and Romney was 46,000.

2. We won't have final numbers from Ohio for another couple of weeks.

Provisional ballots don't get counted until mid-month.

Thank god the race wasn't close enough to depend on OH and FL.

5. Yea. It would have been Bush vs. Gore all over again.

I don't trust either one of these states to count the votes, because of Gov Scott in FL and SOS Husted in OH.
